This has got to be one of the most interesting coffee combinations that I’ve tried in my life! Brazilian iced coffee and coke is definitely a must try if you love iced coffee.
If you were wondering if this actually tastes good, yes, it tastes pretty good for an odd pairing of drinks!
You can even pick up this drink in some stores near you. Coca Cola, the company, even has their own line of coca cola mixed with coffee for sale in different flavors.
Making it at home lets you spice it up however you want!
Ingredients You’ll Need
This recipe is going to make 4 servings of coke and coffee, no point in wasting part of a can of coke!
Brewing Double Strength Coffee
Here’s a quick guide if you’ve never brewed double strength coffee. It’s really simple, you’re going to want to use 4 tablespoons of coffee grounds for every 6 ounces of water.
You can also just do twice as much coffee grounds as you normally would, as long as the coffee comes out strong tasting!
Putting Your Brazilian Iced Coffee Together
1. After you’re done brewing your coffee, put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to cool it down.
2. Add your chocolate sauce to a large mixing bowl, we’re going to be adding in a lot of liquid, so make sure it’s something big.
Optional: You can add a few tablespoons of hot coffee to your chocolate, it just makes mixing and dissolving it easier.
3. Once your coffee is done cooling down, add all the ingredients into the mixing bowl of chocolate: 12oz can of cola, 3 cups of milk, and coffee.
4. It’s ready to serve! Pour over ice and you’re all set to enjoy your Brazilian iced coffee.
Additional Things You Can Add
You can add whipped cream or create your own foam to top this drink off if you want a little more sweetness to this drink!
Another thing you can add to this drink is vanilla ice cream. If you want to add it directly to your cup, I would skip adding any ice in it!
Alternatively you can pour the iced cola coffee over ice cream, kind of like affogato style coffee.
Before You Go
This does have a bit more caffeine than you would normally get from other iced coffees. A can of coke has an average of 27mg of caffeine, combined with the double strength coffee, will give you a big spike in energy!
Each glass of coffee and coke for this recipe will have around 52 grams of caffeine. I got this number by doubling the amount of caffeine in an 8 ounce cup of coffee since we’re using double strength, adding the amount of caffeine in a can of coke, and then dividing by the amount of servings, which is 4.
If you don’t want that much caffeine you can try regular coffee and experiment with the ratios of cola, coffee, and milk.
